Ive been throwing a used 175 gm tee rex for about a year now, and it used to be my favorite disc (used to be ). I cant throw it anymore it wont do what it used to do. I knew exactly how far and where it would go, but i just cant seem to throw it ? Whats up ???
I gotta agree with Scot. As you progress into a game your throw becomes more efficient and you can get more out of your throws than you could before. I am throwing discs that I never thought I would be able to throw straight.
I am going through this now. I find trying a faster disc or a new grip works. What I did was watched some of the better players throw and started to throw like them. It didn't work for me but what happen was I was able to combine a couple of styles and now I am starting to get my distance back. It is just now more consistent.
that's the teerex that i throw. cfr teerex-x. tried the star (got it as a gift, it was a nice thought) it was just horrible. lasted maybe a month. my cfr has lasted a little over a year, and it's just now starting to change flight. still my go-to disc for windy distance.
I thorw 170 Teerex and only in star. Here in North Carolina, there is a LOT of trees. After roughly 1 1/2 years, I notice a change it flight of the disc due to "breaking in". The same with most other discs though. These are "flight plates" and technically, one dent or scratch can alter the flight path so I think yours is just going through the normal lifespan. Also, you have been throwing for a year now and your arm speed has increased so maybe it doesn't work for the disc anymore. Figure it out and dont doubt the Teerex!! It is a work of art!!!
As previously stated, they do "break in" and start to get a lot less stable at high speed. Is your's a dome or flat top? I have a few of each, and the domey ones seems to not break in as much, and keep the stability. The flat top ones definitely get less and less stable at high speed the more you throw them. It also doesn't seem to be a break in process, they just one day are suddenly broken in.
